I am currently looking to optimize my web site www.a-1cellphones.com . I have been shopping around and A lot of service providers want thounsands. For a thousand do the write new content for your site and redesign it? Now some also want to submit the site and charge alot. I dont need submission. New content would be nice. So I thought about redesign But the site builders dont do content. then i ask the about optimizing the current site and they talk about meta tags and alt tags lol i could do that my self. what is a reasonable price for Optimzing my site?

a-1cellphones - Without knowing all the details of your request, I can generalize for you:
Activation fee: (coding, file name structure, meta tags, directory submission, robots and 404 error handling, etc)
Anywhere from $1500 - 10k
Monthly - depending on how many keywords you want and how competitive they are:
$20 - $200 per keyword per month.
If you're contracting a company, ask to see results, and ask to speak with their clients about their service.
hope this helps.

It all depends on how competitive your market category is. And in the end there's a limit to how much SEO on its own can achieve in a really competitive sector.
When the going gets really tough - like in cellphones - you need a combination of both SEO and pay per click to be really effective. So if you feel you need to spend $10,000 on SEO - you'll get 90% of the value from the first $5,000. That would leave you $5,000 to spend on pay per click.

Along with the code and design work, I would also add to the SEO list a link popularity program. Get both one-way and reciprocal inbound links the boost your rankings. Make sure once they arrive on the new re-design, that the site works for your keywords or the SEO will be for nothing.
